the spokespersons, we're leaving iraq, we're leaving afghanistan, we're leaving the area, the people in the area are having to adjust and they believe the united states is weak and they are taking appropriate action. bill: also over the weekend congressman mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee and former fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the br
won applause for ending the war in iraq, setting a deadline for withdrawing troops in afghanistan, something romney said is unwise. usama bin laden's picture was flashed on the big screen as another threat this country no longer faces and the president was skeptical of mitt romney's foreign policy thinking. >> after all you don't call russia our number one enemy, not al qaeda, russia, unless you're still stuck in a cold war mind warp. [cheers and applause] you might not be ready for diplomacy with beijing if you can't visit the olympics without insulting our closest ally.

to afghanistan and iraq. and the lfig has been known to send fighters to syria. bill: they were blaming the film for a time and apparently that will go to the wayside. how does the administration explain the disconnect of the explanation anything? >> reporter: after the head of the counterterrorism center confirmed at the open hearing this was a terrorist attack the white house spokesman two hours later seemed to struggle to explain why the so-called demonstrators brought rpg's and used mortgage tas -- mortars. >> as i said last week as our ambassador to the united nations said on sunday as i said the other day, based on what we know and now, and knew at the time, we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. this however remains under investigation. >> reporter: but there is video shot by the reuters news service, you see it here, that is the night of the attack in benghazi. describes the men carrying rpg's as ex-rebels. there is no sign of a significant demonstration at this time. before benghazi was brand terrorism a u.s. intelligence official told fox that everything under inve
capita, sent more jihadists to iraq than any other country in the world to fight against american soldiers. martha: yeah. >> and the capital of the jihad in libya is benghazi. in fact, we brought qaddafi in from the cold so to speak not only because of his abandoning the nuclear weapons program but because he was giving us valuable intelligence on jihadists in his own country. now, you know, for whatever reason we jumped in on their side in a war that, there was no provocation against the united states but we have to know this is a as dangerous a place as it gets on the planet for americans. martha: initially we were told it was about the video. then there was also reporting that, they were interested in having the blind sheikh released. which i think most people believe is not a possibility. but isn't all of that just sort of giving a reason to sort of an underlying current and a bigger issue here? >> yeah, you're absolutely right. you were good enough to mention my book, and that is exactly what spring fever is about. the dominant islam of this region of the world is islamic sue
, oftentimes, it is loord is immune to the sanks because they have access to resources, we saw in iraq in the days of saddam hussein. but hypotheticalally, with a second president obam term, there are those, especially on the israeli side who believe that that administration, the next administration, if it is headed up by the current commander in chief, would take a harsher line dpeans the israelis to dissuade them from taking out the iran nuclear program. do you agree with that argument? >> i think that's likely. i take it as a piece of evidence, the famous open microphone conversation between president obama and then russian president medvedev. saying, once i'm free, i can return to my natural inclinations. and the hostility of the obama administration's policy toward israel, generally, but particularly on iran, i think would increase in a second obama term. that would leave israel even more alone, as it faces the existential threat of iran potentially with nuclear weapons. >> bill: it was clear where the delegates for the republicans in tampa stood. when he delivered that line, it w
in afghanistan and iraq. as the crow flies from dern that and benghazi, 150 miles. the consulate hit day and a half ago how many protesters came from the town of derna? that is something we'll look at. we'll try to figure out what is the american response in all this? ambassador bolton is on standby. so to are many others. what do we do as a country? there are shades of the uss cole in october of 2000. it was three weeks before a national election. we feel is a little bit of a sense of that. we're 50 days away from yet another vote. we'll see what we do. bolton reacts. martha: they call it a brigade. they're looking like a more formedded force. al sharia has been bounced around for that brigade. more coming up on that in a little while. this creates troubling news for drivers here at home. oil prices jumped on the news of unrest in that region. crude trading above $97 a barrel. the average price for a gallon of regular gas, $3.87 at the pump. wholesale prices were driven up last month by the most in three years. food prices rising almost 1% with steep increases in the cost of eggs and da
cain said. declining influence dramatically in the middle east. billing out of iraq. intending to pull out of afghanistan. having a limp wristed reaction to assassination of four american diplomats. doing essentially nothing about the penetration of security of our embassies in multiple cities in the region. that is the tip of the iceberg in the last two weeks. this builds on a pattern of 3 1/2 years of failed leadership by the administration. martha: obviously there is a lot of political ramifications to this. i want to play two pieces of sound that are sort of prominent voices in this story. and the first one is from susan rice, now about 12 days ago. the second is mike huckabee just moments ago on our air. let's listen to those. >> what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video that, people gathered outside the embassy and then, it grew very violent. >> i think frankly if, you know, this issue really gets the traction that it deserves, and let me say, that it deserves, let's go back. richard nixon was forced out
degree in iraq and just this past week ironically it was confirmed that a leader was taken out by a drone, put there by al-qaida leadership it's stunning what has come out of libya. when he talked about the leadership issue it came up often. american cannot shrink from the responsibility to lead. called the foreign policy administration a hit-or-miss approach. it strikes me as almost a precursor to what we will hear when the debates get underway in october, does it not in. >> i totally agree, bill. you will start to see this theme both on the economy and on polis to be a leadership election, not a stewardship. this needs to be showing leadership not only here in america, leading the economy, but showing leadership around the world, peace through strength, other phrases that you've heard both mitt romney and paul ryan say. i think they were trying to use this moment to distinguish themselves between the romney camp and how they would approach something like this. and president obama. but when ambassador stevens was killed it changed the dynamic a bit and i think governor romney had to get
in iraq, in afghanistan, warns that what we're seeing today might only be the tip of the iceberg. >> we're at the beginning of the air awakening. when the tv lights went off in tahrir square, you know, after mubarak stepped down, you know, like usual we said, end of story, end of autocracies, end of problem, you know. now it is a wonderful new world out there. well not exactly. bill: leland vittert now leads our coverage. he is streaming live again today in cairo. what's all this business about arrest warrants issued by the egyptian government, leland? >> reporter: bill, this really shows how much influence the islamists, the very hard-line jihadists have here in egypt in the sense that now the courts here, the general prosecutor, has kowtowed to their demands that these people behind the film be punished. obviously this is symbolic. the egyptian arrest warrants don't have any meaning in the united states. it stems from last tuesday here near the u.s. embassy in cairo where these protests all began. when they marched down towards the embassy. they ripped down the american flag to protes
extremism. >> it was the third largest contributor of foreign fighters to al qaeda in iraq who were killing americans. so, yeah, it was a prime recruiting ground for islamist forces. i think the answer, the short answer to that, the libyan government, this new libyan government we helped put in power is desperate to show they want to take care of things and they will clean this up. so i think they're going to do that all on their own. now what we have to do is make sure that, that it want one of those we'll round up the usual suspects kind of thing. we have to make sure that we're getting the full truth of what's going on there and not that they're just doing a little housecleaning. bill: this could be a long, bloody battle in that country. >> yeah. bill: we may start to see the beginning of this. back to the letter from the senators. these facts do not prevent you from labeling the murder of four americans as spontaneous reaction to the video and not a expression of hostility of to the united states. if the murder of four american diplomats is not a expression of hostility it is difficult

in iraq. to talk about the nature it of the threat from the iranian regime, not just its nuclear program but well beyond that because the problem with iran is the regime and to avoid talking about that i think sends the wrong signals because people are listening carefully to what the president isn't saying right now. bill: to both of you thanks again. you're a terrific panel. here. can t and steve. thanks. on witter, @billhemmer. that is our website, /americasnewsroom. the world is a aboiling. martha: the president obama with a jam-packed schedule when he comes to new york today. it is to packed he could not find time to meet with the prime minister of israel. but does he have time to sit down with the ladies on "the view"? apparent i owe does. details on that coming up. bill: the morning-after pill for high school girls? ...but you still have to go to the gym. ♪ the one and only, cheerios [ male announcer ] introducing a reason to look twice. the entirely new lexus es and the first-ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. bill: took all of thr
